Hamilton kept up the pressure on Scottish Champions leaders Dundee with a home win over Queen of the South.

Louis Longridge fired a left-footed strike past Alex Clark after three minutes, then Mickael Antoine-Curier bundled the ball home from six yards.

Iain Russell pulled one back for Queens with a tight angled strike.

Ali Crawford added a third for the home side after 57 minutes, slotting home from close range after Clark had failed to safely parry away a shot.
